As Employment Equity is well and truly underway, some companies might find themselves scrambling for all of the information that they need for their reports. Documents like the EEA2 contain a vast amount of information which should be updated through the year, on your payroll system. Pay Solutions payroll offers you an HR Management platform which links to your Payroll system which allows you to immediately download completed reports for the Department of labour based on what has been captured in the system and based on the movements of your workforce distribution, which covers recruitment, promotions, terminations and skills development and is offered at the fraction of the cost of other Employment Equity modules provided by some service providers. In addition, you can save on the cost of paying for expensive software upgrades, consultation fees and time wasted waiting for reports to be fixed by your external consultant.
